It's pretty harmless, yet it's one of the most annoying things about winter...I'm not talking about snow or sleet...I'm talking about the dreaded static electricity.  And it just appears out of the blue...but it's a sure sign winter is upon us.  My cats are afraid to come near me, because every time I pet them they crackle with static electricity....clothes stick to me in the most awkward ways...And my hair?  What a pain in the butt.  I spend the whole winter looking like the Bride of Frankenstein.  Yup...static electricity sucks.  Come to think of it, so does snow...and sleet. Happy winter.    Do you have any tricks to get rid of static electricity?  Please, please share them with me...comment below...
